Human resources are like natural resources; they’re often buried deep. You have to go looking for them, they’re not just lying around on the surface.

Source: "Bring on the Learning Revolution!" TED2010. Feb. 2010. Conference Presentaion. Additional Information: This quote by creativity expert Ken Robinson means that human resources, i.e., one's natural talents, are often hidden and difficult to unearth, just like the valuable oil underneath the earth's service. The problem, says Robinson, is that education doesn't create the circumstances, or the necessary tools, needed to reveal these resources. According to Robinson, we need an education revolution so that people can get in touch with their natural gifts and go on to have more fulfilling careers. The quote is from Robinson's 2010 TED Talk.
